Preparing for college is a process. It includes learning how to be an independent learner, to advocate for oneself and how to improve your academic skills continuously. Students with disabilities going to college should understand that they will be expected to perform – and will be assessed – in the same manner as their peers. There are other considerations, among them are:
What sorts of reasonable accommodations are available?
How do I request reasonable accommodations?
What sort of documentation do I need to receive accommodations?
Why doesn’t my IEP or 504 plan follow me to college?
What steps can I take now to be college ready?
What is the level of parents’ involvement in college?
